More electoral roll problems

The latest article reinforces my point that NZ is lacking by not having a list of people eligible to enrol. Over-stayers can easily enrol. Even tourists can enrol.

The system is based on people who are not eligible choosing to be honest and not enrolling. That isn’t much of a system. Again the criticism is not of the electoral officials. We need law changes so there is a register of citizens and permanent residents and also proof of ID requirements.
